Thankfully, the fog should clear by late morning to reveal summer-like weather. The day will remain partly cloudy with sunny breaks in between and temperatures are expected to reach as high as 27°C but will feel like 35°C with the humidity.
The heat will go into tomorrow with a high of 32 °C with the humidity and then drop down to the teens by Thursday. We'll eventually see fall again by Friday when temperatures are expected to sit at around 10°C.
